Trading emails, calls, and paperwork with therapists and teachers, plus spending time interpreting data and planning the future: it’s slow and messy, and involves lots of trial and error–boy, have we been there!
So we built a better way to track all those communications (progress updates, reports, reminders) in one place, and stay on top of what’s happening (or not) in a child’s development. It’s all available anytime, anywhere.
Use this information to quickly assess whether your child’s program is headed in the right direction.
Unload the reminding and updating from your head to “the cloud.”
Get back your time, and spend more of it with your child and family, spend less with paperwork.
Make decisions for the next course of action for your child’s treatment.
Here’s what MySpecialChildGuide.com gives parents of special needs kids:
AN EDUCATION GOAL DASHBOARD
No more wading through reports, folders, or take-home binders:
Out of, say, five IEP goals, know instantly which three need attention.
Our Dashboard calls out problems so you can spend your time addressing them. Your console shows an overview of goals, and progress in each one.
TEMPLATES AND TOOLS FOR CREATING BETTER IEP GOALS
Our best-practice IEP Goal Templates give parents a place to start, and guidance to create measurable IEP goals.
Match them up with the team members responsible for their implementation to make sure milestones are reported. Our tool also allows uploading of documents and relevant reports for private access by team members.
REMINDERS THAT POLL YOUR CHILD’S TEAM, AND PULL TOGETHER THEIR PROGRESS DATA
Don’t wait for that report card or next IEP meeting to see how your child is doing.
For the goals you enter into your cloud-based plan on MySpecialChildGuide.com, our system automatically texts and emails teachers or therapists according to the schedule you set. They just press one button to respond, or fill in a date-stamped, four-blank web form. We track down timely information for you, creating updated progress reports from the people who work with your child.
CHART YOUR CHILD’S PROGRESS; STAY MOTIVATED
See your child’s trends over time – see your child’s progress chart for each goal with one click from the Dashboard.
Has progress on a goal stalled? Do you need to redefine the goal, or rethink the supports? Or, has your child exceeded expectations? See it all clearly in in graph form, and keep perspective on how far your child has really come.
MANAGE YOUR CHILD’S CARE TEAM
Use one tool to communicate with your whole team; set the permissions you want for each member — you choose who sees what.
No more chasing down emails, calls, and texts from different inboxes to get updates. You can now receive updates all in one place. Manage access and permissions of team members to compartmentalize private information.
ALL ON A MODERN CLOUD PLATFORM THAT GROWS WITH YOUR CHILD
No more paper binders!
MySpecialChildGuide.com can follow you anywhere–desktop or mobile. And we’re adding more capabilities you and your team can use to help your child progress, such as data-driven Goal Recommendations, Team Collaboration Tools, and more.
